All Things oDesk
October 22, 2008 by Michael Levinson

We are introducing a new, more detailed version of the buyer candidates queue. We’ve made it easier for buyers to manage the candidates in each active opening. Specifically, the more interactive view will allow buyers to:

  • Scan candidates’ key qualifications and cover letters
  • Filter out candidates that do not meet the preferred qualifications for the opening
  • Quickly grant interviews to quality candidates without navigating away from the queue
  • Quickly reject (or mark as spam) obvious misfit candidates without navigating away from the queue

Note that this view is still in beta and we would very much like to solicit your feedback on the new functionalities as well as suggestions for improvements. Please post your comments here.

(For now, you can click on the “standard view” to access the original candidacy queue UI.)
